Red Horse Knife Works Full Custom BLACK DEATH CHOPPER - Last One!
The Chopper model is Red Horse Knives' premier Tactical and EDC frame-lock folding work knife. It was designed to take extensive amounts of abuse. This knife is Ed Kim's full custom "Black Death Chopper". It is the very last one in the series, and in my opinion one of the coolest he's built. This bolster-lock folder features a 3/16" thick CTS XHP blade, heat treated to 58RC hardness, and is hand satin finished to 1500 grit with a super fine edge.
This Black Death Chopper features marble Carbon Fiber scales, and a stonewashed titanium bolster. Ed has outdone himself - the Pivot Collars, Thumb Disc, Pocket Clip, and Backspacer, are all made of Zirconium and have round copper accents inlaid into each. Those inlaid copper accents with develop a beautiful patina over time, from handling and ambient air. Titanium sapphire ground hardware, including the tiny thumb disc screw. Ed has also polished the choil (thumb ramp). It has jimping on the rear portion of the blade spine for better control and feel, and filed notches on the lock release bar. As with all of Ed's knives, it runs on stainless steel bearings.
Lock-up is rock solid, and the blade sits centered in the frame. Slight evidence of lock stick. It comes shipped in a Red Horse Knife Works pouch.
